I know. I know. Should I be looking at cupcakes while I’m trying to fit into my old jeans? The answer is YES – especially if they are s’more cupcakes. Come on now!
Here’s a great recipe for the holiday. Yum. Yum. and Yum.
- 7 whole graham crackers (1 cup/250 mL finely crushed)
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) powdered sugar
- 6 tbsp (90 mL) butter, melted
- 4 bars (1.55 oz or 43 g each) milk chocolate candy, divided
- 12 large marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place graham crackers into a large resealable plastic bag. Finely crush into crumbs using Baker’s Roller®;. Combine graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and butter in Small Batter Bowl. Using Small Scoop, place scant scoop of crumb mixture in each cup of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan. Press crumbs to form shallow cups with Mini-Tart Shaper. Bake 4-5 minutes or until edges are bubbling. Meanwhile, break two of the candy bars into rectangles. Remove pan from oven; place one rectangle into each cup.
- Cut marshmallows in half crosswise using Professional Shears dipped in cold water. Place one marshmallow half, cut-side down, into each cup. Return to oven 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are just slightly softened. Remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 15 minutes. Carefully remove cups from pan. Cool completely.
- Break remaining candy bars and place in (1-cup/250 mL) Prep Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute-11/2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the top of each marshmallow in melted chocolate. Turn top-side up and let stand 40 minutes-1 hour or until set.

- Dipping the Professional Shears in cold water before cutting the marshmallows helps minimize sticking.
- The time it takes the chocolate to set varies depending on weather conditions and room temperature. You can refrigerate the cups briefly until the chocolate is set; store them at room temperature.
- Store the cups in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Freezing is not recommended.
- For a richer chocolate flavor, substitute dark chocolate candy bars for the milk chocolate.
